Pray for a miracle for Miracle!!

My friend's friend's horse is colicking pretty bad. She caught it as soon as it started, he was parking out in the crossties, and the owner thought it was a little odd but took him into the arena to lunge him. Then he parked out again and looked at his belly. So over 12 hours later, he's at the equine hospital on pain meds. It's a displacement. The vet poked a hole in his gas bubble and released a ton of gas. They were giving him time to wake up when I left the hospital, then they were going to walk him around and hope he could re-place his intestines, colon, whatever it is that is displaced. I'm not really sure. Surgery is out of the question, so they're giving him this chance to pull through, but if he fills up with gas again, he'll be euthanized. But he's fighting so hard, he's been such a good boy and doing all the best things a horse could do for himself under his circumstances. So please, please, please, pray for a miracle for Miracle!

I'll pray for a quick resolution, and will keep Miracle and his owner in my thoughts.

I will be praying for him.
I recently had my horse colic and I was extremely scared.
Luckily she pulled through.

Just tell him to be strong and things will be okay.

He's been very strong. Very, very strong, which it what makes the whole thing so heartbreaking. He's a flashy, beautiful Paint gelding with tons of potential and incredible movement. And instead of hunkering down and rolling when it started, he just tried to stretch it out, which helped to prevent any further displacement or twists.

He is in my prayers.

On a side note i thought it has become proven that rolling does not encourage displacment its just a common myth???? Not sure if they were trying to prove or it was proved?

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable

No idea about that, but if the vets think there is a slight change he can walk it back into place, it would be reasonable to assume a horse can roll it out of place. But again, no idea. I never heard it was disproven, but that doesn't mean anything. Plus, it is displacement, and he didn't roll, so who knows.

Things are going as good for Miracle as we could have hoped. His gas bubble hasn't filled up again, the vets are going to feed him soon, and hopefully it doesn't fill up again. If it does, he will be put to sleep. So let's keep the good thoughts coming. =]
